Weschler chronicles Hockneys protean production and speculations, including his scenic designs for opera, his homemade xerographic prints, his exploration of physics in relation to Chinese landscape painting, his investigations into optical devices, his taking up of watercolor-and then his spectacular return to oil painting, around 2005, with a series of landscapes of the East Yorkshire countryside of his youth.

These conversations provide an astonishing record of what has been Hockneys grand endeavor, nothing less than an exploration of the structure of seeing itself.
